She went from having a hit blog, to landing a book deal and now Tracy McMillan’s single camera comedy, “Why You’re Not Married,” was picked up by ABC, according to Deadline.com. Dreamworks will produce the show along with ABC Studios. The comedy explores the current state of modern American love — especially the dynamic between the millions of attractive chicks between the ages of 25 and 45 who want to be married… and the men who seemingly refuse to commit to them.

McMillan is known for her series credits on “Mad Men” and “The United States of Tara.” “Why You’re Not Married,” originated from a blog post McMillan did in February where she stated the reasons why women were still single. These reasons included:

1) You’re a Bitch
2) You’re Shallow

3) You’re a Slut
4) You’re a Liar
5) You’re Selfish
6) You’re Not Good Enough.

It became an instant viral hit (no surprise there) and caught the interest of book publisher Random House. Why You’re Not Married…Yet: How To Stop Acting Like a Bitch And Start Getting Hitched will be released on May 29, 2012.

    the funniest thing about coco cream’s comment is that it is arrogant and full of hate and then ends, “one love”. made me chuckle. coco cream i hope you have someone to release your anger to. I am a black woman and it seems that you have more attitude and anger than you assume i do…

    peace, love and soul.

    Ladies please accept my apology if I have come off sounding angry and bitter because that is certainly not the spirit from which I come. As a man who “walks his talk” I humble myself to you and apologize for my tone. But am I upset with many of our sisters for the issues that I have outlined…Yes. Am I disappointed with the lack of accountability amongst black women for those issues…..Absolutely. But I ask that you grant me the same courtesy in understanding my anger , frustration and seeming hostility towards you when dealing with this issue that you ask brothers to grant you when you present us with the stank attitude that many of you have. I know 99% of you were not born with nasty attitudes that so many of you have. And I know that many of you will hope that a Good-Brother (ie: your Ideal Man) will recognize and understand that the rough acidic exterior that many of you adorn is simply a faux coat of protection that you have developed over the years resulting from all of the hurt inflicted upon you by society and black men. I am sure none of you would endorse turning a good brother off due to a hardened faux exterior. ……. But sadly many of you do.

    I do not hate, or abhor my beautiful sisters. Please don’t get it twisted because I am not that angry misogynistic brother. But I am that brother that is not afraid to hold you accountable by holding that mirror up to you and force you to deal with your own dysfunctional behavior in spite of your unwillingness to do so. Ladies you will simply have to WOman-up and deal with it. If you continue to ignore it and or minimize it and cling to the attitude of “if you can’t deal with me and who I am, then tough”, your plight is only going to get worse. In addition, it also makes you an ultimate hypocrite because many of you have wishes and hopes that require brothers to change their dysfunctional ways.

    Also another point, I endorse interracial dating because love should not be boxed in by one’s race, but not only do black men dislike many of your nasty hardened calcified attitudes, but so do men of all races. Don’t seek refuge in another race to protect your bad disposition. Don’t look to another man of another race to fix what is wrong with you. But let’s keep it real, in order to fix, address, repair, and renovate your flaws and dysfunctions ladies, first you have to be mature, godly, and woman enough to admit that you even have problems to fix. Put yourself in a man’s shoes for a second…. How many of you ladies can list five issues that today’s (black) women have that contributes to keeping many of you single…… and here is the key, WITHOUT including men as part of that problem? If you have trouble making this list, then you my dear are a problem.

    Once Love…… For Real ;-)

    Typical ignorant classless response. Answer this damidwif, If a woman who was raised by a good father who treated her like a Princess is allowed to wish for a man who “treats me like my father did”….. then please tell me why can’t a man expect a woman to treat him as good as his mother and or grandmother did? ………….

    It’s ignorant responses like the one left by damidwif that makes so many black women look like certified bad options for marriage. Girlfriend and booty buddy…….. YES. Wife and mother to my children……. N to the O with hell on top.

    Yall sister have to do better……

    im not sure you realize that the role of a wife/partner and a mother/ grandmother is different. and since it seems that you dont, and i suppose you represent all black men, then it’s obvious what the problem is. and as far as i know, a wife needs to be good enough to fuck, too. as far as the homemaking is concerned, i have kids that i already mother. i dont need another. so get in where you fit in. oooooh, im sorry i make all black women look like bad options for marriage…being that i already cook, clean, converse, think, and fuck pretty well. my problem? i dont want to get married. so maybe you better check up on someone else and try to bash them.
